Yesterday evening, I made it just under the wire, re: In Situ ~ la, la, how the life goes on, in order to get the limited-time 50% + 20% discount. Those discounts took the cost of the book from $125.00USD down to $56.00USD. Good deal, and, it is worth noting for those who are in a POD book making frame of mind, Shutterfly, my POD book source of choice, regularly follows one expired limited-time discount with another discount offer within 24hrs. I can't remember the last time I paid the full ticket price for a book.

FYI, as mentioned in yesterday's entry, most of my picture making is done with my 20mm f1.7 Lumix lens. Re: the pictures in the In Situ ~ la, la, how the life goes on book, all but a very few pictures were made with that lens. The ones that were not were made with Olympus 4/3 cameras/lens combination before I got into the Olympus µ4/3 world.

The non µ4/3 pictures were made with my 4/3 11-22mm f2.8-3.5 lens on 4/3 cameras. The lens was zoomed out closer to 22mm rather than 11mm. That made the angle of view very similar to the 20mm µ4/3 lens I now use, resulting in a unified look, field of view wise, for all of the pictures.

While I can't speak about other camera makers, Olympus has maintained a nearly identical color palette in all of their "serious" cameras over all the years - a decade or so - I have been using them. Once again, that characteristic has made it possible to mix pictures from various times and cameras without an obvious difference in the color palette. iMo, that's a very valuable characteristic which creates an visual integrity across a body of work.
